The good news is that the hotel was purchased by the Fairmont Hotel Group. They will modernize this grand old classic and bring her into the 21st century. However, the views of the bay and San Francisco cityscape plus the excellence of service and the desire to serve make this worthy of a visit now. This tradition of excellence makes... More

Arriving at the Claremont, one cannot help but be impressed with the massive 1915 structure and modestly landscaped grounds. While entry feels like coming in a back entrance, the check-in lobby soars with old world style and a view of a time gone by. Check-in was quick and courteous but be prepared for the resort fee whether you are able... More

The Claremont Hotel and Spa is a unique getaway for alll types.....if you simply want a nice romantic evening, eat at the Meritage and overlook the town of Berkeley while enjoying an excellent meal, or listen to live Jazz at the Paragon. If you would rather have a spa weekend with girlfriends (which was my experience), you'll enjoy a wide... More

The hotel itself has a huge presence it's beautiful as you drive on highway 13. The rooms are okay they're pretty small and it's kind of expensive but it's working for the spa. The spa is world class the best I've ever been to the masseuses are very professional and of course the facilities are excellent.

This is totally worth it and the facilities are beautiful. Hotel guests are able to use the saunas and showers for free. They'll give you bathrobes and slippers and serve cucumber water. Delish! I didn't get a massage but I would if I came back.

The hotel is old but very beautiful. Parking of $30/night is a bit much. $26 resort fee is a bit much if we didn't use the amenities Overall , my stay was great

The spa is simply incredible. Everyone working there is gracious and service oriented. I must say I had the best message of my life by Diane Ingracious. My facial with Semegn was over the top perfect and again the best I have ever had. I was so relaxed I forgot to get their names and had to call today because... More

I scheduled a ginseng herbal facial for me and my wife for our anniversary. After we checked in with the spa reception, we each went to our respective gender's locker rooms to change into robes. I was greeted by a very friendly employee named Brandon who gave me my robe, sandals, locker key, and where to go next. After my... More

I was actually excited to stay at this hotel - I've wanted to for many years - and cut short my stay in Napa to do so. Given my experience, I'd stay in Walnut Creek or Emeryville and save money next time. My wife and I stayed in this hotel on 8/1/13 and we were disappointed on all fronts. Long... More
